Early, Fruitful Start to da weekend baby!
Two biggie thumbs up to Yul @ Barristers in the Hilton, the man is THE hotel bartender in Toronto. Last week when we went by, Yul was on a cruise[the Queen Mary, the nerve!], so Anil, formerly of Fez, was our drink slingah; a most enjoyable sloppy seconds if I say so mi'self.
Had some good chats w/ some musician types-my fave subcast of homosapien, part of the Barristers crowd last night. The piano man of the evening, who we may catch @ Prego in Yorkville on Saturday, and his pal who is a drummer and has performed for the likes of Ron Sexsmith and Bryan Adams. Originally from Vancouver, he is in town to be part of the performer list for the upcoming CBC TV hockey series that Analisa is working on. Note to self, I must check in with her...
All in all a good night, but sad to see a chap who was either too tired or too inebriated get chucked out of Barristers though, he kept putting his feet, sans shoes on the bar - wtf??
Ok - time to check in w/ the local news, according to yesterday's budget, it looks like there is going to be a rate hike on the ttc, sigh...
Would like to check out the scene at Prego...never been there but, hey, it's Yorkville...or almost.
